Oxford Street lights are perhaps the most iconic lights in the city. Tourists and locals flock to take photos of the twinkling stars every Winter. The display is illuminating for a certain amount of time each night before switched off for the rest of the night. This is to ensure the display is as eco-friendly as possible. Also, the decoration is made out of recycled materials.

Ever After Garden is the most poignant light installation to visit during the festive period in London. It’s an ocean of illuminating white silk roses, each of them is there to remember loved ones we have lost in cancer.

Visitors can dedicate a rose to a friend or family member they have lost and write a short message to be placed next to one of the roses.

The roses are re-used every year to maintain sustainability, therefore, visitors cannot bring them home.

By dedicating a rose with a donation, you help raise fund for The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity.
